*Well it looks like Rihanna has fallen out of the good graces of her fellow Barbadians after skipping the funeral of the Barbados prime minister.
In a letter sent to Media Take Out, a Barbadian complained about how the star was too busy to pay respect to the country’s leader.
An excerpt from the letter reads:
Rihanna had her “people” release a statement saying that she was saddened by his passing but due to her schedule would not be attending his State Funeral this Wednesday.
As a Barbadian I find her behavior and response to this disgraceful. Our PM practically shut down our Island when she won that Grammy. Gave her a full concert, gave her a SUV, Land + a House at the super exclusive Apes Hill (Valued at Millions) plus made her a Cultural Ambassador and she seriously can’t take the day or two to fly home to show her respect for the man who did all that ??? I mean she’s flown home for two days to attend reggae concerts !!!
And then to have her “people” send that statement?! She couldn’t even make that personal?? She should be ashamed of herself! I know Barbadians all over are very upset and have taken to their Facebook and Twitter accounts to vent about it. Yes people understand she’s busy, but if PM’s other other countries can not only suspend their Parliment sessions out of respect but take the time to fly here for the funeral then why can’t she?
If it’s any consolation letter writer from Barbados, Rihanna also missed the wedding of her supposedly BFF, singer Katy Perry, to Russell Brand over in India. Here’s her explanation for that:
“I will never ever forgive myself for that…it was a crazy time, it was a crazy week, I’m switching management. There was no phone service in India and very little-to-no Internet service, so it would have been a little irresponsible of me. I’m sad that I missed it.”
Just for the record, India may not have a lot of first world conveniences … yet. But one thing the country does have and that is incredible Internet service. So that excuse won’t fly Miss Rihanna.
